    You can basically emulate master pages using Symbols in Sketch.

    Create the template you'd like to use as a master page on an artboard. Then group all of the objects, and turn the group into a symbol. Then lock the layer.

    You can do this for as many master pages as you need. If you want to switch an artboard to a different master page, then select the symbol, and choose a different symbol from the symbols dropdown.

      That's a good call. You'd end up having a different "master page" depending on the height of the page because of how symbols work right?

      At this point I turn the header and footer into symbols and drop them in where they're needed. The more I've pondered this the more I think variable symbols would be 100% more functional than any sort of master page.
